We’re never going to try and sell you something you don’t need. This means that our registered agent service and business formation packages are simple, stripped down, and cost effective. However, we want to make sure that you get everything that you want to run your business and achieve your success exactly how you like, so we’ve offered some optional add on services that you can select at checkout.
- Tax ID (FEIN)
A Federal Tax ID (FEIN) is essentially a social security number that is assigned to your business entity for record and Identification purposes. As scary as that sounds, having an FEIN isn’t just for “the man” to keep tabs on you. It will be needed to file tax returns, open banking accounts for your business and for payroll purposes. If you plan on starting a business that is anything other than a sole-proprietorship, we recommend that you file for an FEIN as soon as your entity formation has been confirmed, or we can do it for you.
- Corporate Seal
A corporate seal is a custom stamp made for embossing your Texas corporation’s official logo and incorporation date on documents, primarily stock certificates. Although they are not a legal necessity in Texas, they’re just plain cool!
- Corporate Book
As your Corporation grows, so does the need for storing and organizing your vital records and documents. We offer a custom Corporate record book and attach your articles of incorporation, bylaws, and leave you room to record your meeting minutes.
If your corporation has less than 100 stockholders, and you’ve only issued one kind of stock, you most likely can convert your C-corp into an S-corp. With an S corp you can enjoy “pass- through”taxation (reminiscent of an LLC) with the IRS, without changing your corporate structure. We can help you successfully elect to file as an S-corp.
If you need any of your LLC or corporate documents for purposes overseas, in order for them to be valid they need to be notarized by an Apostille. If you ever need to prove ownership or sales to a bureau in a foreign country, an Apostilles’ certification is the only thing that says, “Hey, I’m legit!” At Lone Star Registered Agent, we can file for your Apostille-certified documents in person, cutting days of your standard processing time.
- Certified Copy
If anything ever happens to your original formation documents, don’t worry, Lone Star Registered Agents can get you a certified copy of them from the Texas Secretary of State. Although you should always take care of your Original formation documents, a certified copy is as good as gold.
- Certificate of Good Standing
If your business is really taking off and its time to expand outside of Texas, odds are you will need a Texas Certificate of Good Standing to incorporate a Foreign business. A Certificate of Good Standing is a legal document that certifies that your corporation or LLC is has kept up on it’s annual requirements and maintains a good standing with the Texas Secretary of State.
